No idea why, though the same thing happened to another unrelated site that I occasionaly visited, vanished like an old oak table.
Strange that the site had recently had a makeover, which would discount any lack of interest on the part of Lizard.
There does seem to be plenty of fallout drifting this way, whether this is good or bad remains to be seen.
I tried to make him laugh, He didn't get the joke, and then he said I wasn't right in the head.

I think ( only guessing mind ) it may have been a number of things .
When the site was changed , I think only a fraction of old members returned , the discussions had become limited too , maybe Liz decided to call it a day , BUT , some official notice would have been nice ( I found this site through that one ) .
Maybe the people were playing the games on there more than entering the discussions . Its a shame as it was once a very good site .

I for one liked and enjoyed some of the arguements .....especially a very long one about John Ellis once...though some did get carried away .

Well I for one am looking forward to once again being terrorized by a pile of pink pfoof in an alligator suit.
I'll just don the white fluffy dressing gown and lie here on the decking in cringeing anticipation shall I?
Shame to lose the french forum.

Yes It's such a shame to lose the FRENCH FORUM as many of my fellow country (wo)men who don't speak English, don't have a Stranglers place to debate, to compare impressions and give information about the band anymore !!! :( :( :(

I'm agree with you that's a shame to lose french forum, but I think that most of the members of Liz's french forum are here too , and can read and speak English, not necessarily fluently ( like me). As for me, it's a good exercice to try to understand some words not common for me. But you're right: why not to suggest to create here a forum where french ( and belgian) people can express oneself and share their impressions - emotions about the band ( and others) :?: :?:
Et en français, merci pour les photos et la revue du concert de Poperinge.
un jour parfait
